‘Today is about justice’ with man found guilty of Nikki Allan’s murder in 1992

David Boyd has been found guilty of murdering seven-year-old Nikki Allan over 30 years ago in Sunderland, having lured her to a brutal death in a derelict warehouse 300 yards from her family’s home.

Speaking at Newcastle Crown Court after the trial, an Assistant Chief Constable said: “The investigation into Nikki’s murder has been one of the most complex and comprehensive ever conducted by Northumbria Police.”

He added: “I further hope this sends a strong message that no matter how long ago an offence takes place, we will do everything we can to ensure justice is served.”
